Certain organisations in energy-intensive industry sectors may be eligible for a Climate Change Agreement (CCA). CCA’s are voluntary agreements made by organisations to reduce their energy consumption in return for a discounted rate of CCL. Holders of an agreement can claim a discount on the Climate Change Levy (CCL). From April 2019, the discount for electricity will increase from 90% to 93% while the discount for gas will increase from 65% to 78%.

What are the benefits?

Holders of an agreement can claim a discount on the Climate Change Levy (CCL). From April 2019 the rate of Climate Change Levy (CCL) applied to energy purchased by businesses will increase dramatically (49% for electricity and 71% for natural gas). This could be particularly costly for energy-intensive organisations that do not have a Climate Change Agreement.  In line with the increase in CCL from April 2019, the discount for electricity will increase from 90% to 93% while the discount for gas will increase from 65% to 78%.
